Accessing the Siteimprove dashboard
To access the Siteimprove dashboard for the first time:
- Log into Magnolia.
- Open a page in the Pages app.
- Click the Siteimprove icon to the right of the page.
- In the pop up window that opens, enter your Siteimprove credentials.
The Siteimprove dashboard then displays the SEO results for the page you have open (and site the page belongs to).
Once you have logged in for the first time, the Siteimprove dashboard remains available via the icon for each page you open.
If the Siteimprove icon is greyed out, log out of Magnolia and back in again.
Setting your website to be observed
Before any SEO check can be performed, you must set your website to be observed by Siteimprove. You can do this in the Siteimprove application itself.
Performing an SEO check
To perform an SEO check on your site, tree or page, click Check page in the Siteimprove dashboard. Siteimprove analyzes the page's content and displays results such as the DCI page score, number of broken links, misspellings and more.
Note: The default spell checker integration we provide is to an external service TextGears, Siteimprove offers its own.
